Would you believe this Geranium is 5 years old? With a total outlay of approximately $10, the total cost per year is $2. When it is time for frost, bring your geraniums into the garage/shed for the winter. I hang mine from the ceiling with hooks. Let it go dormant and when March rolls around and the weather gets nicer, start putting it out in the sun during the day and start watering it. (I don't water all winter long.) It will get ratty looking, but in the Spring, remove all the
yucky stuff, it'll grow back. I had about given up on this one this Spring, and look at it now!

you really dont have to take them in.....while I was in Greece and Turkey, the temperature was
in the 50s and 60s and the Geraniums were HUGE and some grow wild....which tells me they faired through the winters there. I bought some last year after my trip and they have faired outdoors in my winter and summer(watered and shaded). I bought a greenhouse at amazon.com this year just in case
What do you do when you don't have a white kitchen? They are all the rage right now but for those of us who find ourselves with dark cabinets it can feel a little bit like we aren't part
of the "in" crowd. I hope you will read the rest of this over at our blog to find out how you can still create a space that is light, bright and full of charm without breaking open that can of white paint!

I agree Leslie, my second home had white cabinet covered up with pink paint, I removed the
paint and restored them and added walnut flooring and black granite.
